Fingers crossed, Paco, would be great to see you.

All right, the rest of my unresolved plans can now resolve themselves around this. I"M IN. We're driving down super early on Friday, getting in for the first show, hanging all day/night Saturday, and driving home Sunday morning. If there's still availability, I'd love to play an acoustic set on either night.

Yes, please! Count me in for an acoustic set if there's still room, jb. Traveling down with Jim so my schedule will mirror his a bit. Thank you :)

Intentionally Left Bank needs to play Saturday night as the drummer is arriving from Brazil that morning. So, barring any trouble at immigration there will be rawk.

JB, I volunteered for "Whatever is available," but I'm getting to the point now* where I really need to know whether I'm playing an acoustic set or if I can get louder. Also, I'm trying to entice some friends to come out for my set. So if you could please let me know approximately when you were planning on scheduling me, and whether or not I'm allowed to "go loud," I'd really appreciate it.

OK Here's how it's looking so far you guys:

FRIDAY
======
6:00 - CARAVAN RAY
6:30 - SOCKPUPPET OR WHATEVER
7:00 - FITZROY
7:30 - ROYMOND
8:00 - MANHATTAN GLUTTON
8:30 - LUNKHEAD
9:00 - HOLLY FURLONE
9:30 - JIM TYRRELL

SATURDAY
========
6:00 - FUTURE BOY
6:30 - JON ERIC
7:00 - TOBY ROKTOT
7:30 - ADD MUSIC
8:00 - FRANKIE BIG FACE
8:30 - JOHN BENJAMIN
9:00 - LIVE FIGHT STARTS

Did I miss anybody? Anybody want to quibble with their slot?

It's all lined up in half hours right now, so consider that you have 25 minutes. However, the only hard line is that at 9:00 we have to start being acoustic. But as I have it laid out here in this order, we should be fairly well protected from that danger by virtue of who is playing around those slots. So I'll shift and slide everyone around as necessary and keep to the rough schedule. If you have friends coming to listen, best get them there a half an hour before your listed moment in the spotlight.

We're gonna have a great time! Looking forward to seeing everybody!

My set needs to be Saturday, as Lefty arrives Saturday morning.
Also, can it appear on the marquee as "roymond & Intentionally Left Bank"?

Since I'm playing drums for CRay and my wrists are acting up pretty badly lately I'd like more of a break between his set and mine, and also I have a local friend attending who might not be able to get there that early.

Oh and I'd still like my set to be more transitional between the ROCK!!! and acoustic sections, and I'm willing to eschew drums as a conditional thing so feel free to put mine on the border between the two. I still don't even have a drummer lined up anyway.

Don't worry about before or after, just kick ass in your slot and all will be well.
